Preparing Immigrants for Immigration Reform

Many immigrants are not well-informed on how to prepare themselves for the possibility of an earned pathway to citizenship passing into law due to language and barriers and other challenges.  Too often, desperate people seek information and help from unauthorized legal practitioners (aka notarios), and sometimes unscrupulous, immigration practitioners who may take advantage of immigrants for monetary gain.  Resources here are provided to help immigrants and local service agencies understand how to prepare for immigration reform and protect themselves from unauthorized practitioners.
